Did the administration and the media shoot itself in the foot in the Trayvon Martin controversy?
Island Turtle ^ | April 13, 2012 | Corky Boyd

Posted on 04/12/2012 10:20:11 PM PDT by Corky Boyd

Gateway Pundit carries an interview of Janet Murgula, President of La Raza, on Keeping it Real with Reverend Al Sharpton (guest host Andre Eggelletion). The gist of the conversation is Hispanics and blacks should join forces to address common “problems.” It is curious why such a conversation is taking place at the height of the Trayvon Martin issue.

It seems the controversy is now driving a wedge between Hispanics and blacks. Janet Murgula wouldn't have made her statement otherwise. The friction has long been there. Look at the street gangs of Los Angeles, look at the prison gangs. They are primarily Hispanics vs. blacks. Blacks blame Hispanics for their job losses and a host of other ills. Hispanics think blacks are being dealt better cards in the way of racial preferences.

When the Trayvon Martin case exploded, it was in the interest of the Obama campaign to make it a case of white vs. black. They wanted to gin up the base with the tried and true "the Klan is coming to git you" mentality. But it has turned into a renewal of long simmering Hispanic/black tensions -- this despite the sycophant media’s best efforts to create anti-white animus by calling George Zimmerman a white Hispanic from a gated community and various other subterfuges.

Efforts by liberals, the media and black “leaders” for rush to judgment no doubt has Hispanics worried that this is but one more example of favoring blacks over them. Obama and the liberal media unintentionally walked into a trap....

They built the trap they walked into.

In the fever swamp to incite violence among black v. white, someone forgot to look at Z’s picture.

The monsters HOA and SUV and HOODIE were too irrestistable. Ha ha.

Yes, they attacked Hispanics.

Even lumped them in with Whites!

Zimmerman's pic from court shows him to have a significantly darker complexion than the “faded out” pictures that have appeared in print prior to today. When the facts of the case come out, this is going to blow up in their faces. We need to keep George Zimmerman in our prayers because I am afraid he could lose either way. If he is released, he will never feel safe again. What kind of people could deliberately misrepresent the facts for political reasons and in so doing ruin the life of an innocent man?

The media should be arrested. All of them. Jailed for life, no parole. If they had done their jobs honestly we wouldn’t be in the situation we find ourselves in today.

How much more twisting of facts could they do?

Do you mean how they portraied Tray as a Sunday School model citizen, when he was actually a drug selling burglar, or how they portrayed Geroge as a Killer Cracker Nazi intent on hunting down and slaying poor widdle skiddles?

Perhaps Zer0 and Axelrod really walked into this minefield of Hispanics vs. Blacks. My guess is they ginned-up the hate machine to start a race war between Whites and Blacks based upon George Zimmerman's name. What they didn't know was Zimmerman was: (1) a Democrat, (2) half Jewish (German) and half Hispanic (Peruvian). The NY Times tried to smooth over the Hispanic part by labeling Zimmerman as a “White Hispanic” and the MSM tried their best to cast Zimmerman as a White racist gunning down a poor Black victim. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

As the facts have been coming out, all of a sudden the Hispanic community wised up to the Black lynch mob being stoked here. We know the state of race relations between Hispanics and Blacks is touchy at best. This intentionally fomented race hate from the White House could (and apparently has) started to boomerang. If it does, it could really shatter the Black-Hispanic coalition that Zer0’s depending upon for his election. I have a feeling this party's just beginning and it may just play out differently than originally planned.

Zimmerman is not a large man and he was measured at 5'8" at his booking.

We now know that Trayvon was at least 6 feet, maybe 6'2".

I think the way the news reported a young boy being shot by a man actually influenced the statements witnesses made.

There was at least one witness who saw the "larger man" on the "smaller boy" and I think assumed that the smaller boy must be Trayvon because that was how he was reported in the media description of what happened in her neighborhood.

Isn't it odd that in every other case with footage from a gas station or a 7-11 security camera, the news organizations seem to get hold of the footage and put it on the air?

Would showing Trayvon's visit to 7-11 show a large figure in a bulky hooded sweatshirt and perhaps baggy pants favored by the yutes these days?

The size of Trayvon in that footage would be inconsistent with the narrative given by the media.

Carney tried to wash zero’s hands of this pending bloodfest just today, imperially announcing that He and Him will have no further comment on the M v. Z case. Now we just have to wait for all the RAT media who are materially invested in the case to get the ‘cable’.

Should take about until Sunday before the ‘I said shut up and KILL this story’ command is understood and implemented.

Carney may have thought he could shut the MSM up, but Obama’s WH War Room uncanned this bunch of worms. The problem for the White House and MSM: once you've opened the can, how do you put all those worms back in the can?

I expect the Black race baiters will keep stoking the racial fires and this will fire-up the Hispanics because they will not abide a Zimmerman lynching by the Jacksons and Sharptons.

Whites are p.o.’ed too, but the Hispanics are the ones that could really be the problem for Holder's and Zer0’s people. This Z vs. M case will NOT go away because someone will keep stoking the fire and pouring gasoline on things.

Then there's AG Holder and his DoJ bunch of racists — will they get the message? We shall see, but I predict things will get far more interesting before this is over.

Well, the original thesis was obvioulsy that a White racist Jew who is Republican and listens to Rush Limbaugh gunned dow a 6 year old Black saint, who only thinks about his mother and Jesus all the time.

That was the plan.

White? No.
Jew? No.
Republican? No.
6 year old Black ‘child’ (as they keep repeating) No.

Nothing happened. It was just two men fighting and one of them got killed. It happens every day of every week of every year in every country in the World. What the Hell?

This Tyron guy (or whoever the hell he is never cured cancer. He was far from a perfect model citizen. He was a criminal and a punk. He died like every criminal punk does. What is the big deal? Really?

This whole thing is about OBAMA and SHARPTON and the election. None of this has anything to do with ‘justice’ or what actually happened.

BTW, I hope you all know that Sharpton is personally responsible for murdering a Jew in Brooklyn. If the Jews were not such deluded Leftist freakin' stupid ass pussies, Sharpton would be in jail today.

Where was the JDL or the ACLU when the Sharpton riots were happening? Where were they when some poor boy walking home from school was stabbed by a BLACK guy, for no other reason than he was Jewish? Idiots. American idiot Jews are just determined to destroy themselves at any cost.

Look what you have done. Are you proud of yourselves. I do no understand how any of you can even look in a mirror.

Latinos are not afraid of Blacks. Period.

I am soooo tired of listening to whites speak with the fear that some of their black friends might hear what they are saying about the Zimmerman case......like their black friends give a damn about how their white friends will feel when they say anything....about anything!

Remember 13 percent of the population makes up 44 percent of the prison population, 400,000 attacks on whites by blacks a year, 14000 attacks on white women a year by blacks...and the beat (ings) goes on.

Yep he's small and was the night it happened per the police surveillance video. Also he looks 100% Hispanic unlike the other pics we've been shown. I hope his attorney emphasizes that the size difference if this goes to a jury.

George Zimmerman white

How the MSM lies, cheats and promotes left wing propaganda.

The above image demonstrates yet more doctoring of evidence by the MSM!
  1. ALL of the MSM used a childhood photo of the black man juxtaposed with Zimmerman dressed in 'county orange'.
  2. NBC News doctored the original 911 tape to portray Zimmerman as racist - claiming to later fire some unnamed producer when they were called upon this fraud
  3. ABC News doctored a video to hide Zimmerman's injuries
  4. CNN has now admitted that due to some 'enhancing' error, that Zimmerman did not use a racial slur at all... contrary to what they originally said when they were busy fanning the flames.
  5. The above photo as it appears in the original mugshot and then as it appears on ABC News, where they have made him look more white by bleaching and narrowing the image.

With regard to the image above, it cannot be said that it happened somehow by accident. These are major news agencies with the best equipment and image manipulation skills on the planet. This is more deliberate manipulation of the news and associated images to create anger and promote a particular line of propaganda.

How many examples can you find of the MSM doctoring the news either by editing 911 calls, police video or official mugshots? Perhaps by their choice of language - E.G.→ Coining the phrase "White Hispanic"?

Perhaps editing the images of Trayvon to show him as a baby, young boy or even photoshopping him to make him look like a doe-eyed model?


Even more evidence of ABC's intentionally falsification of its coverage.
Below is a still from the video of Zimmerman at the police station that ABC presented as evidence that Zimmerman had no signs of head injuries on the night of the shooting.

Notice the normal location of the logo/chyron on the left video as compared to the Zimmerman video - where it was intentionally moved to cover where the undoctored video best shows evidence of a head injury.


You've all seen the obvious use of Trayvon's baby picture instead of his recent hoodlum photos in all of the MSM... in fact, if you do a Google image search for Trayvon, they are still at the top of the results.

Yes the black guard and George are the same tone. I think it’s funny because the judge didn’t even recognize GZ standing right next to Mark OMara.

It has been my experience that Hispanics are just as racist as any other demographic.

Many years ago a Cuban friend of mine patiently explained to me the “pecking order” of races in Miami:

Cubans, Colombians, Dominicans, Haitians, & at the bottom - black Americans. It was a bit amusing to me, as I often couldn't tell the difference. That really irritated him.

At the end of the day, not at all.

Obama shored up the base of blacks with those comments and actions. There was real fear of his black support level dropping to below 99.999%.

The American sheeple haven`t been given permission from the Minisrry of Propaganda to express outrage at Obama`s interjection.

Hey liberals! the dude is brown! His white genes got shoved aside by his Mayan/Aztecan ones.

If Pancho Villa had a son, he would look like Jorge Zimmerman.

I agree with the author, big backfire here.

WTF is a “white Hispanic”? a dreamed up race by the MSM.

WTF is a “white Negro”? A nightmare purportrated upon the United States by Marxists who want to destroy this country and they have been doing a pretty good job of it for the last three years.

Great response! The problem is that I have talked to two internet-savy adults in the last few days that have no idea who George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin are. Even though some of the deceptions of the media has already been exposed, I'm afraid that many people (especially Blacks who still think 21st century citizens are responsible for slavery and all of the indignities they suffered prior to and during the civil rights era) will never take the time to learn the truth. Their opinions will have been formed as a result of the erroneous information that the media rushed to put out once the shooting was called to the attention of the nation.

Yeah, commi liberal cowards always try to go hug hug, we make up and do not betray each other... yet... when we all know they have a long knife at each other’s back the minute they are stuck somewhere.

We should not support these people. Our continued support of such people is what is killing this country. But as the economy crashes, it is wake up time for commi liberals, time for them to “get real” and start killing each other before the end of this “hunger game” of theirs.

Keep your freaking ammo dry folkes, and start the pop corn.
